Using the attachments on a traditional upright vacuum can be a real pain. Dragging it round from plug to plug; the hose never seems to reach far enough, not to mention the heavy weight.The Gtech Multi is designed to make all those problems disappear: It uses the attachments you’re familiar with from your upright vacuum, and combines them with the cleaning performance to match the AirRam, all rolled into a cordless hand-held vacuum.
Taking your traditional upright vacuum accessories and packing them in to a handheld cleaner is not a new invention by any means, however the Gtech Multi does have a few tricks up it’s sleeve that see’s it’s competitors wondering how it’s possible?
The Gtech Multi is both the AirRam’s accessory extension and a cleaning gadget lover’s necessity. Bringing together versatility along with an abundance of cleaning options, the Gtech Multi, is your handheld cleaner on steroids. From the moment you open the box, everything about the Gtech Multi is easy. Each component ‘clicks’ together and each accessory has it’s own use, neatly slotting and connecting on to one another for easy storage and convenience.
When it comes to performance, the Gtech Multi is your all-in-one spot cleaner that does exactly what it says on the tin. We say spot cleaner, as this is where the Multi absolutely excels. When it comes to larger areas, it’s advised to whip out your AirRam or other main vacuum cleaner. On hardwood flooring/tiled areas, the Gtech Multi really gets to work, eliminating every speck of dust and dirt. Embedded pet hairs on carpeted areas however, are a little different. Using the Turbo brush head and a few ‘swipes’ across the think pile, around 95% of the hair and fluff was removed. If one were to ‘work’ harder and spend longer going over the area in question, the cleanup is as close to 100% as you could get with any handheld cleaner. Smaller dust particles however, on carpeted areas, are handled without any issues.
The included accessories really do get put through their paces, and while on the face of it, there looks to be ‘too’ many tools for the job, you really do find yourself chopping and changing as if it were second nature. The extended pole is ideal for reaching in to ceiling corners, while the extendable hose makes reaching in to awkward corners quick and effortless.
As we are dealing with a handheld cleaner, the Gtech gets in to all those spots your upright or cylinder cleaners struggles with, and as such is designed to work in unison with your main cleaning unit, as opposed to it being a standalone cleaner.
The Gtech Multi builds upon an already cordless, and convenient way of spot cleaning our homes. It took everything we thought we knew about handheld vacuum cleaners and flipped it on it’s head. Offering AirRam users the convenience of all their missing on-board accessories, while offering the virgin handhelds a grab and go clean gadget option. Bursting at the seams with accessories, the Gtech Multi fuses versatility with comfort, offering those with a busy lifestyle a quick and easy way to clean on the go. Performance wise, the Gtech Multi excels at it’s intended use: spot cleaning, and it’s in this scenario that you’ll ever wondered how you ever manged without one. For larger areas, or where hair/fluff is particularly embedded, the Gtech Multi requires a more ‘down and dirty approach’, where a longer than necessary cleaning employment is needed.
As a standalone purchase, the Gtech Multi is a pricey accessory, however when bought as a package deal alongside the AirRam Upright, The Gtech Multi becomes a powerful cleaning fundamental.
